Only a few more weeks until every store in the city starts playing Christmas music – and there’s only so many songs that can last until December 25. Try skipping the madness and insanity and finally do all your shopping earlier (like you promise yourself to do every year) at this year’s Gastown Shop Hop tonight from 5pm – 9pm.
More than 50 boutiques and restaurants are taking part – offering discounts, live music, and food. You really don’t have a plausible excuse not to grab a friend and enjoy a couple of drinks in the 4th most stylish neighbourhood in the world.
There are to be discounted men and women’s fashion, accessories, and home décor at Gastown’s local and independent businesses. A few participating boutiques include Dutil, Community Thrift & Vintage, Roden Gray, One of a Few, Aveda, Hitz Boutique, and so much more.
However, if shopping isn’t in the stars tonight then enjoy the different restaurants participating – including the Greedy Pig, Judas Goat, Irish Heather, The Diamond, Pourhouse and several more. It doesn’t hurt to check out the stores either since every boutique has a variation on the evening – Community Thrift & Vintage are hosting a carnival with games, drinks and deals.
